Question: How much does it cost per square foot?
Answer: Square footage price is a very vague concept. Square footage only applies if every lot was the same and every home had the exact same amenities. Some square footage price may or may not include driveways, landscaping, in house financing, etc. Cost per square foot provides vague and sometimes unreliable data at best. Here at King Homes we use a detailed specification sheet to provide you with reliable costs early in the project.
